About

header underline

Cork Wine Bar and Market are joining together under one roof in the former Cork Market space to create a unique and innovative wine-centric dining, education and retail experience. Upstairs, our guests can enjoy the classic warmth of Cork Wine Bar. At the wine bar we offer at least 50 wines by the glass and 250 bottles from small producers around the world. It is an affordable, casually elegant place that demystifies the world of wine by giving you real descriptions of what you are drinking, flights of wine so you can explore different regions and varietals, and suggestions for pairing our wines with our offerings of plates to share. The Wine Bar has expanded to offer beautiful patio dining and private dining opportunities for our guests to host wine dinners, receptions and even personalized wine classes and experiences. 


At the market, our guests can choose from a curated selection of retail wines with more than 300 selections of small production, sustainably made wines. The market also offers freshly prepared food, cheese, and charcuterie, as well as specialty food items. New to Cork Market is the opportunity for our guests to dine-in on our selection of prepared foods while sipping their favorite glass or bottle of Cork wine. Cork Market also offers a Wine Flight Club, a membership program with curated monthly selections and quarterly pick-up parties, and weekly tastings from our favorite producers and importers.

Diane Gross & Khalid Pitts

Owners

Diane Gross and Khalid Pitts opened Cork Wine Bar in January 2008 in their Logan Circle neighborhood with the dream of creating a welcoming space for people to come with friends and family to try outstanding wines, often from unexplored regions of the world, paired with delicious, simple, local food. In December 2009, the couple expanded their offerings with the debut of Cork Market & Tasting Room. Pitts is a long-time social justice activist; formerly he was the National Political Director for the Sierra Club and currently serves as a principal at Democracy Partners and as a member of the Executive Board of the D.C. Health Benefit Exchange Authority. Prior to co-founding Cork, Gross was a civil rights lawyer and was General Counsel to Senator Barbara Mikulski. They live in Logan Circle with their two children.

Jason Schreuder

Executive Chef

A native of Eastern Long Island, Jason graduated from the University of Maryland in 1999 with a degree in political science. Despite his interest in pursuing a career in law, he was unable to overcome his passion for cooking. Jason is a graduate of the International Culinary Center (formerly the French Culinary Institute) in New York City and also a former sous chef both at Cork under the wine bar's first chef, Ron Tanaka, and at Cleveland Park's Ripple. His wide-ranging background includes stints at Jean-Georges' Mercer Kitchen, BLT Fish and San Francisco's Absinthe and NoPA. As Executive Chef, Jason continues his support of local and sustainable products and producers while creating plates to share with a nod to continental cuisine. He resides in Columbia Heights with his wife Tara and their two puppies.

Julio Amador

Assistant General Manager

Julio has been an integral member of the Cork Wine Bar staff since it opened in 2008. He began his career at the restaurant as a bar back, then worked his way up as a busser, server, bartender, bar manager, to where he is today as the restaurant's Assistant General Manager. Throughout his entire time at Cork, Julio has developed excellent relationships with colleagues and customers, making sure the restaurant runs smoothly, effortlessly, and safely. In November 2016, he passed the Introductory Sommelier Course examination at the Court of Master Sommeliers.
